Hi! My name is Katie. I want to welcome you to the Give1Save1 Europe page! We here at Give1Save1 are so excited you found us! If you are new to Give1Save1, let me tell you a little about who we are and what we do!

Who We are and What We Do

Give1Save1 is a blog with heart! All of our bloggers are volunteers who want to help adopting families bring their children home. It all began with an adoptive momma-to-be, Beth, who knew personally how expensive adoption can be. She had the brainy idea to start a blog asking people to give $1 (or more) to a family who was adopting. With everyone giving a little, it adds up to a lot! Beth wanted to feature a family a week, and help that family quickly raise money to bring their child home. Give1Save1 originally featured families adopting from Africa. Beth's idea worked so well, that new pages were created to feature families adopting from Asia, the Caribbean  and domestically. Now, we have a page to feature families adopting from Europe too!

How  You Can Help

Want to help? It is easy! First, please share Give1Save1 with everyone you know! Know someone adopting who needs a little jump start on their finances to bring their child home? Tell them we are looking for families to feature. Know anyone with a dollar to share? Let them know that their $1 can make a difference in the life an orphaned child! Facebook and Twitter are a great way to share.

Second, you can bookmark our blog page, become a follower, or like us on Facebook. We will keep you updated on what's going on here at Give1, Save1 Europe! You can also check out our domestic, Caribbean, African, and Asian pages at!

Last, but not least, scrape up that little bit of change in the floor of your car and check under your couch cushions. Now, get ready for the warm, fuzzy feelings that will come from knowing your $1 will help bring a child into his or her family! If you haven't already, you will want to set up an account with PayPal. Paypal is a secure way to donate money through a credit card or bank account. It is quick and easy, too!

How to Become a Featured Family

Are you adopting from a country in Europe? We are looking for families to feature who need financial help with the European adoption. You may have a referral or still be waiting for a referral. If you would like an application, please email us at give1save1europe (at) gmail (dot)com.

If your family is chosen, Give1Save1 will feature you for one week. You will need to create a short video to introduce yourselves and share the exciting details of your upcoming adoption. Get creative and have fun with this! We will post your video on Monday, and you can share the blog post with all your friends too. Pin it, post it on your blog, tweet it, email it, and share it on Facebook. Let everyone know that they can make a difference by giving $1!  If you don't already have a PayPal account, you will need to set up one to receive all those $1 donations!
